Maybe one of you specialists can tell me more about this overprint and canceling? I cannot determine the town's name, and I get lost in the vast number of anchor varieties!

the 36(1936?) indicates fake overprint. A major concern with Japanese occupation of the Dutch Indies.

I agree with Boeloelawang

3 things mark this as a forgery:

1. As noted above it is dated 1936, before the Japanese occupation
2. The 12 1/2 c cent stamp was withdrawn from the Netherlands Indies before the war
3. Boeloelawang is on Java, which was controlled by the Japanese Army - the Navy controlled Borneo and the islands to the east. There were no anchor overprints in Java

Thank you Stampdoc, a good analysis indeed. I would be helpful if all forgeries were as recognisable as this one !!!!
